Hobbs End Is Only The Beginning…

 In General

The mention of Hobbs End tube station (from the film and TV serial “Quatermass and the Pit”) in the article linked below about the London Underground roundel’s 100th annivarsary art project sent me scurrying on a quick and ever-so-slightly-nerdy search for other fictional tube stations.
